Free Flag Pillow Tutorial


Happy Monday Sweet Friends!
Hope y'all had a wonderful weekend?


I have been wanting to make this flag pillow
for some time.   If you would like to make one
too, you can find the free pattern over here.  Thank
you sew much sweet Heather for providing us with
this sweet tutorial.



Well, monkey see monkey do.  Everyone on Instagram
is making flag blocks.  Some are quit big.  So my sweet
friend Carla figured out the measurements for the perfect size,
We had a sew day last Monday and this it what we started
making.  These flag blocks really become addicting.  Sew
beware lol!  I have been making a few here and there. 
Not sure I will have it done for the 4th but we can shoot for
sometime in July.

Hugs,
donna

Star Quilt


Happy Friday!
Hope the week has been good to you.
The rain has finally slowed down and we can actually
see the sun again here in Texas.


In a previous post I showed you this awesome star
quilt I quilted for a customer.  Some of you wanted to 
see the quilting closer up.  I totally forgot I had this 
picture.  The panto I used is called Whipped Cream.

Hope you have a day full of fun and sewing.

I Love My Job


Good morning sweet friends.

I have been quilting away and it has been sew 
much fun.  Quilting and sewing is the best job 
ever.  


You know I apologize I did not get the whole quilt.
Pictures have been hard to take.  We are still having 
gloomy weather.

These quilts belong to Clara, you can find her on Instagram
under claralovestosew.
Clara is going to give this sweet heart quilt to her
mother.  I quilted it using Hearts A Flutter.


Clara is going to give this quilt to one of her friends.
The fabric's in these quilts are just gorgeous.   For this
quilt I used Hearts and Roses.  Thought it would be 
sweet.

Well I am off to my own little bubble in quilt land.  lol!

Hope y'all have a beautiful day.

Hugs

More Rain and Quilting


Happy Friday sweet Friends.
Texas is still getting a lot of rain.  In neighboring
counties people's homes are getting flood waters
in them.  It is so sad, and more rain is expected.


On a happier note.
 My Sew Sweet Bee quilt from 2014 is all finished.
  Each person made me a 12 inch Jacobs ladder block.
 To finish off the quilt I picked some fabric's out of 
the quilt and make a scrappy binding.


On my binding is where I embroider the name of the
 quilt and the date.  All that is left to do is to wash it 
to get the crinkly goodness.


Can you believe this customer quilt?  The stars
are beautifully done.  This was a fun quilt to quilt.
This one is definitely a labor of love.

If you are interested in having me quilt your quilts
please contact me at lavenderrose1965@gmail.com

Happy Monday sweet friends!

Today is another dreary day.  Looking  like
rain.  We did get a little sunshine yesterday.
But I am beginning to think we need web feet
over here.  lol!


This is this months Sew Sweet Bee Block.   This 
is for Kathy.  She does not have a blog but you can 
find her at cowboyandt on Instagram.  She asked for
the Honey Bee block by Erin over at Why Not Sew
I loved making this block.  It really is a fun block.  If
you would like to make one too you can find the tutorial 
here.  Thank you Erin for such a fun block and easy 
tutorial.

Hope y'all have a beautiful week.
